The Free Speech Movement

University of California Press

This chapter provides another recount of experience as a student activist in the Free Speech Movement (FSM) at the University of California, Berkeley. It discusses the author's rebel-versus-Valley-Girl tensions which began in high school, foreshadowing the lefty she would become. It explains that her high-school nonconformity was a prelude for Berkeley and that she immediately joined the on-campus issues-oriented political party SLATE when she arrived at Berkeley. It relates her participation in the demonstrations at Jack London Square and Lucky Supermarkets.

Keywords:   student activist, FSM, University of California, Berkeley, SLATE, demonstrations, Jack London Square, Lucky Supermarkets
